How Star Trek Conquered Planet EarthBook - 1998
"Jeff Greenwald, a loyal Trek fan since the first episode aired in 1966 transports himself to the farthest reaches of the Star Trek universe, seeking out the bizarre and amazing ways that "Gene's Vision" has infiltrated global culture. This takes him to a Klingon wedding in Germany, the byways of Florence, and the markets of Bangalore. He hangs out with Hungarian yuppies, eats shabu-shabu with a dozen Tokyo "torrekkis," and visits England's most celebrated rocketeer." "On the homefront, Greenwald talks to the stars and producers who have brought this vision to life. Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, and Rick Berman are among those who discuss the import of Star Trek's thirty-two-year reign and their unique place in this new mythology while luminaries like Kurt Vonnegut, science fiction grandmaster Arthur C. Clarke, and the Dalai Lama speak up, measuring humanity-at-large against Roddenberry's optimistic ideal."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
